29.       THE PHOENIX PROJECT

It establishes and manages self help groups
Through psychosocial Rehabilitation assistance
And socio-economic upliftment
Of mentally disabled and stabilized members.
It operates on regular sessions,
Sometimes as just an ordinary support group
But aims to focus on the holistic criteria.
The meetings start by formulating
And feedback of social workshops by members
To combat anti social behaviour
And to develop this aspect in individual members.
The latter part of the meeting
Focuses on individual projects
To cater for particular illnesses
Needs and the abilities of members.
The project is run in association
With the community, family
And mental health professionals.
It is chiefly coordinated by end users
And is a voluntary operation.
